The most romantic & beautiful gown by leading Australian Bridal designer Karen Willis Holmes.
The gown bodice has a v-neckline with Chantilly lace cap sleeves. Semi-fitted lace skirt with a soft very fine tulle draping around the bodice & over the skirt. A high sheer back with keyhole that fastens into 3 little self covered buttons at the small of your back. From here the tulle draping falls into a small train over the lace skirt. The tulle draping is open at the front waistline so when you walk the movement of the fabric & layers is beautifully delicate & soft. I added the lace appliqué flower at the v-neck but this could easily be removed if you wanted a true v-neckline.
I finished the dress off with a small 1.5cm wide arrow head beaded belt on grosgrain ribbon, which I am happy to sell as well if you would like it. You could wear it without a belt or choose something different to make it your own.
I am 166cm tall & wore 10cm heels. There are bra cups for a size B cup sewn into the gown so you don't have to wear a bra, or you could have these removed if not required.. I am a size 8-10 NZ.
I wore the gown in December 2015 & it is in excellent condition. There is a very small "pull" in the satin of the underskirt from where the train dragged across the ground during our photos, but that is the only blemish & it is only visible from lifting up the train & looking underneath. You will never see it when it is on. It was professionally dry-cleaned straight away & stored in a special box with acid-free tissue paper since.
I felt absolutely amazing in this dress. It is classic, elegant & truly timeless. I would like nothing more than for another lucky bride to love wearing this stunning gown & feel as amazing as I did.
It is a little hard to see the gorgeous detail & movement of this dress in the photos. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for more information & photos.
